Personal Injury Claims: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)

Know the Elements of a Personal Injury Claim

Personal injury claims in Oregon are complicated. To establish liability and recover the full and proper financial compensation that you deserve, you must establish every element of the claim. The key elements of a personal injury claim include: 

  • Duty of Care: To start, an injured victim must prove that the defendant(s) owed a duty of care. A claimant should also be prepared to establish the extent of that duty of care. 
  • Breach of Duty (Negligence): Negligence is the failure to abide by the duty of care. What constitutes negligence varies based on many different factors. All serious accidents should be thoroughly investigated by a top Banks personal injury lawyer.  
  • Causation: There must be causation between the defendant’s negligence (failure to take due care) and the victim’s injuries. Without causation, there is no liability. 
  • Damages: To recover compensation, you must prove your damages. In Oregon, injured victims can recover compensation for economic and non-economic damages. You may be entitled to recover money damages for medical bills, lost wages, loss of earning power, pain and suffering, and long-term disability/disfigurement.
